A few months ago, Terminator creator and mastermind James Cameron revealed that he was loosely attached to the upcoming Terminator Genisys film. It was just an advisory role for him, but it seems like he played a decent sized role in developing the story that we are going to see unfold. In a recent interview with Deadline he reveals what what his big and awesome contribution was.
"I wasn’t interested in producing it or working on it actively, but I did want to put in a good word for Arnold. I pointed out that the outer covering (of the Terminator) was actually not synthetic, that it was organic and therefore could age. You could theoretically have a Terminator that was sent back in time, missed his target, and ended up just kind of living on in society. Because he is a learning computer and has a brain as a »

We’ve posted about PBS’s Idea Channel before, but I just came across this old video that posits that if you call yourself a Whovian, you just might be an acolyte of a religious order. That will likely come as a surprise, but hear him out, he kind of has a point. And really, as far as religions go, one that only requires an hour of worship on about twelve Saturdays a year is a pretty sweet deal. In fact, if we run with this and push for an official church, all our Doctor Who gear purchases could be tax deductible. This is sounding better and better. We could even have official Who holidays. I'm guessing David Tennant's birthday would be our version of Christmas. November 21st is our Yom Kippur.
Warning: The video is spoiler free, unless you’ve never heard of regeneration.

Not content with heaping praise on Peter Capaldi, the lovely Billie Piper says Jenna Coleman (aka current companion, Clara Oswald) is “brilliant.” In an interview with the Radio Times, the Secret Diary of a Call Girl actress said: “Everything I’ve seen [of Series 8] I’ve thought is brilliant. I think Jenna Coleman is brilliant and I...

While he won't be going by The Teacher anytime soon, Doctor Who's 12th Doctor will now be helping children to learn how to code. On Monday, the BBC announced a new game based on world of Doctor Who titled The Doctor and the Dalek. The game will be written by one of the show's writers, Phil Ford, and it will tell the story of the Doctor as he teams up with one of his mortal enemies, a Dalek, to save all of creation. Don't expect to play the game on a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, though—the educational game »

Warning! Spoilers: This post contains spoilers and speculation for the Doctor Who series eight episode “Flatline”.
When we are young life is a line. We travel from point to point, each step laid out for us by whatever authority we reside under. We are told where to go and what to do and made to believe that if we stick to the path and achieve certain goals our reward awaits us at the end. It’s only as we grow older, as we experience the things that deviate from the illusion of a pattern that the world takes on depth.
When the Doctor gazes at Clara in the final scenes of “Flatline” what does he see? Does he mourn for lost innocence? Clara saved the world. She conducted herself well without getting distracted by the pain and loss occurring around her. When the moment came to make the hard decisions Clara made them. »

Villordsutch reviews Doctor Who series 8 episode 9 – ‘Flatline’…
The Doctor – “Could you just not let me enjoy this moment of not knowing something? I mean, it happens so rarely.”
A role-reversal episode this week in Doctor Who in which Clara becomes the Doctor, though not in a Freaky Friday-esque fashion but more of the Doctor being stuck in a rapidly reducing in size (externally anyway) Tardis and Clara being stuck on the outside. The writing duties falling to Jamie Mathieson who you will remember wrote the rather great episode Mummy on the Orient Express last week, and he serves us this week a few scares and also a handful of laughs too.
Our episode begins with the Doctor and Clara arriving city of Bristol (home of Banksy) and it’s here when Clara notices the main Tardis door has shrunk along with, they soon discover, the rest of the Tardis. »

The BBC said Monday it would launch The Doctor and the Dalek, an online game, using Doctor Who characters and voiced by the sci-fi show's star Peter Capaldi, to teach children basic computer programming skills.

This week’s episode of Doctor Who may have been one of the most brilliant episodes of Series 8 so far as the companion gets to step in big time. The concept for “Flatline” was mysterious creatures from a “2D Universe” that were trying to understand our 3D universe. Some of the best mysteries of Doctor Who are whenever the monster of the week isn’t 100% clear. The whole deal with the Tardis’ exterior shrinking was hilarious, but it was also a great way to give Clara the opportunity to be the prime focus of the episode. Jenna Coleman has been one heck of an addition to the Doctor Who universe so it was greatly appreciated that she got to do so much in this episode. Seeing her as “Doctor Oswald” was outstanding and even though she was communicating with the Doctor the whole time, you got to see her having… »
Last week’s episode of Doctor Who kept Clara (Jenna Coleman) mostly on the sidelines while the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) was front and center doing all that he does best. So, it’s interesting that the show follows it with an episode where he is mostly offscreen and she’s front and center doing all that he does best. Yes, he. In “Flatline,” Clara gets to play Doctor in a way that allows her to understand him a little better. That’s important for a season in which she is constantly on him about his methods and manners. She has to deal with situations where she too needs to lie for the better of the mission, to give people hope because those without it are more likely to die. But she also has to cope with the fact that some people may die while she’s in command. I’m a little surprised that she doesn’t »

Marvel Studios’ space opera Guardians of the Galaxy continues to do well in China, and has now become Marvel’s third highest-grossing film behind The Avengers and Iron Man 3, surpassing this year’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier at the worldwide box office.
Guardians has now grossed $733 million worldwide, placing it in fourth place at the 2014 box office, behind X-Men: Days of Future Past, Maleficent and Transformers: Age of Extinction. It definitely stands a chance now of passing both Days of Future Past and Maleficent, which have grossed $746M and $757M domestically.
So much for the titular group of outlaws-turned-heroes being a “risky” bet for the studio, eh?
Guardians of the Galaxy sees Gunn directing a cast that includes Chris Pratt (The Lego Movie) as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana (Star Trek Into Darkness) as Gamora, Dave Bautista (Riddick) as Drax the Destroyer, Bradley Cooper (American Hustle) as Rocket Raccoon, Vin Diesel (Fast & Furious 6) as Groot, »

It peaked with 10.1 million viewers (45.6%) at 7.45pm, making it the highest-rated show of the series so far.
Over on ITV, The X Factor averaged 7.38 million (33.2%) from 8pm, peaking with 8.07 million around the 9pm mark.
ITV's The Chase was earlier enjoyed by 3.08 million (14.7%) from 7pm.
When Doctor Who is at its best it can be imaginative and scary, especially for a younger audience. There is always a fine balance though between the scientific jargon that can be used before the show loses its audience, or they just close off their brains while the Time Lord spews out big words. Flatline is yet another episode to scare the kids, but when it focuses on dimensions, will it lose its audience between the first, second and third dimension?
When the Tardis lands on earth a little smaller than usual Clara finds herself trapped outside and the Doctor unable to get out. Having to take control of the investigation as to what is affecting dimensions Clara discovers a new menace trying to force its way into ours from another.
With people disappearing and ending up as murals on the walls it’s interesting to have a new creature that feels unique. »

With its dimensionally challenged Tardis and Bristol setting, this weeks episode was funny and scary, but mostly it was very, very strange
Aside from the obvious, the most impressive addition to the Doctor Who family this year has to be writer Jamie Mathieson. After masterfully pulling off Hinchcliffe-era horror with his debut Mummy on the Orient Express last week (one of the more popular in the comments, too), his second effort swerves the show into tense urban thriller territory, and is one of the more effective demonstrations of how to do the cheap one.
